    Hello,

    UK - 957003 Cpl George Henry Fearnley ADAMS.

    1-8-1945
    No.3 PAFU
    Oxford I LX140

    Aircraft was being ferried from parent unit for major repairs, and crashed at 1200 hrs at Braydon Road, Wiltshire - destroyed by fire.

    The Oxford circled Braydon Road, then went round again and struck a telegraph pole crashing into a farmhouse. The pilot was engaging in unauthorised low flying.

    AUS4091* F/O (Pilot) George RETALLACK RAAF +
    957003 Cpl (Pass.) George Henry Fearnley ADAMS RAFVR +

    Both buried, Bath (Haycombe) Cemetery, Somerset.

    * Retallack's service number is quoted elsewhere, as 1605. I believe 4091 is correct (4091, was the number he was allotted on enlistment).

    Photo of Retallack RAAF, here: https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/UK0599/ - W/O "MONTY" KEMP MBE., believed to be: 16564 W/O Montague KEMP MBE(M) RAF.
